in a lot of ways and changed how the rest of the world viewed the united states. but india, a lot of people would say, was a lot more comfortable with the previous president, with president bush, than with president obama. why is that? >> in large measure because president bush had made india a significant foreign policy priority. now what india is witnessing, that it is one of several amongst competing priorities for this president. and, of course, with afghanistan having become a centerpiece of american foreign and security policy, india is not getting the attention that it received during the bush administration, particularly during the second bush administration. so, there's a little bit of unease and concern in new delhi about the stature of the relationship at the moment. >> is he making up for it? i know some of the things he said today in the press conference was talking about a strategic dialogue and a personal partnership when he was talking about things to show how the obama administration is committed to india. but besides that a lot of things people might say are vague, a perso
state dinner for the president. something they were she lighting as this relationship between the united states and india on a host of global issues, how critical this is, but the follow-up stories obviously after this was very little about the event itself and so much about this incident, and then, of course, the investigation and the big questions as to how this could happen and certainly this concern as well here at white house. i mean, this is a president -- all presidents obviously are targets. they are dangerous situations which have to be defused all the time, but in this particular case there are threats against this president. there's been a lot of concern about that, and so this just shows as one representative already talking about, here is someone who is a possible target by extremists and yet someone like this was able to slip into the white house, and so a lot of concerns here and certainly a distraction, something that they did not welcome at all. >> james, i assume that this really goes both ways. it's not just the obama administration. when i was covering president bush
